Dearest Vweta,

We miss you. You showed so many of us the way forward. 

You battled to heal from a surgery that took away your vocal ability. In doing so, you showed us how, even without a literal voice, we can find our own.

You showed us how to fight for our own health so we can pour out more goodness into the world.

You showed us how we could start our own projects with the sick, the vulnerable, the left behind, and celebrate their wholeness - our wholeness.  As you did with your Project ASHA, which you expanded across four countries and six states across Nigeria.   

As you said:  “ASHA means life and hope in Sanskrit and Swahili. Today I am giving women access to the Internet, which is giving them a voice, just as it gave me my voice. I am creating digital literacy hubs in rural communities: safe places where women and girls can connect and share their stories with the world.”

You showed us how even with little resources one can give back.

You were a true World Pulse leader. A World Pulse Ambassador, Featured Changemaker, Vocal Contributor, Featured Storyteller.  You built and created World Pulse alongside us. 

Thank you Vweta, we will not forget your name.  And now we will show you how we will give to others what you gave to us.

Rest in power sis. 

Love, Jensine

Dear Jensine,
Thank you for this. So important that we remember women who are suddenly not here with us, but who always will be, in spirit. Vweta made change happen wherever she went, and spread love. We will remember her and continue to be inspired by what she accomplished in her life.

Thank you Jensine for sharing Vweta's life and work with us who did not have the pleasure of working alongside her. So that we can meet her, know her, and be inspired by her innovative courage, and the incredibly compassionate way she lived.

Thank you Jensine for this! I did not have a chance to know Vweta personally, and now thanks to this glorious tribute, I feel like I do. This morning I am filled with gratitude that this platform gives women a voice to live on forever and continue to bring and radiate their passion and voice to the world.

Hugs from Montreal,
Adriana

Dear Jensine,
Thank you for this beautiful tribute. She indeed showed us that we can find our voices in so many ways and give back even with what little we have.

Her story on how the internet gave her back her voice is one very powerful story which resonates so much with me because I found myself very much there while reading. One of my best posts of hers.

Her work and legacy lives on even as we miss her presence.

Dear Jensine,
it's great that we honor and respectfully remember women here on World Pulse platform. Most and many of which we will never physically meet in our lifetime and that is life. We are blessed to have innovations and use technology to connect us to wonderful inspiring souls globally and support each other in our journey in Life.
May we honor Sister Vweta and may her soul rest in peace and we send our heartfelt condolences to her beloved family left behind. Thank you for sharing this important read.
sincerely,
Mama Queen
